From The Studio

Programmers and rats

This picture shows Markus Zeller's working place. His screen is closely guarded by a big plastic rat.
Incidentally, at one time this rat was almost instrumental in sending our Senior Cleaning Manager into the great Beyond when, unsuspectingly opening the coffee machine, she happened upon a huge rat. The colleagues who came up with this practical joke want to remain anonymous to this day, as they are still terrified of her revenge.

From The Studio

Landscapes designed without the help of computers at all

Joe Reitinger manages to produce landscapes even without computers. In his spare time he will tinker with dioramas or his little model railroad installation. The result is quite impressive – though hardly anyone at the studio really understands his decision to use the N scale.

From The Studio: The Green Parlor

Where do you gather in a developers' studio for a social rather than an official meeting? Why, at the coffee machine, of course.
On this picture we see part of the team in our so-called Green Parlor. For the sake of the picture, we have even managed to persuade the smokers among us to do without their beloved cigarettes for a few minutes. Under normal circumstances, the smoke haze is so thick that flashlights won't penetrate it.

Monitoring is necessary

Developing games is an expensive and time-consuming business. Whereas not so long ago, programmers would simply program away, developers are now aiming to plan and monitor all procedures as meticulously as possible. Therefore detailed project plans are drawn up and adherence to them is continuously being monitored. Sabine is the one responsible for this supervision at our Ebensee studio. She begins her rounds every day at 4 p.m. sharp and collects the daily status reports from each worker.

Woeful Wednesday

Image
(Click To Zoom)

Our coffee machine is cleaned every Wednesday morning. It is a fact well-known to everybody in the studio. The procedure always takes place at the same time. - And yet, inexplicably and bafflingly, almost every week, you will be able to observe a small cluster of people gathering in front of the machine at that exact time. They wait with long, impatient faces for the cleaning procedure to end and the machine to finally start working again

Round and round

For Industry Giant 2, the Austrian model train manufacturer Roco published a special edition of a digital starter set. One of these much sought-after collector's items is in our studio now. Here you can admire it in its full magnificence.

Berni is not only our chief programmer, but also our system administrator. When everything grinds to a halt again on the network or the server gives up the ghost, his help is needed.
Here you can see him engaged in a – seemingly impossible – search for a dead-end in the studio network. In his defense it must be said that this local jam on the data highway was resolved within a very short time.

A new face
Image
It's the right time and place to introduce a new face.
Christian Charbula supports us as a programmer in the Ebensee studio since June 2003. His main task is artificial intelligence. He can be made responsible later on if the opponents are too stupid or clever. But we are optimistic that he will design the opponent's personalities so that there is exactly the right opponent for each player.
If not ... his email address is ...a bit later perhaps;-)

Gone to the dogs?

ImageImage
(click to zoom)

The latest addition to our studio could encourage malicious-minded people to maintain that we are slowly going to the dogs. After all, the number of dogs here has doubled over the last month.
The new-comer is a young labrador lady called "Farah". Not really house-trained yet, she keeps her owner and master Martin on the go. Right now, she is still small and cute - but wait another six months, and people might decide that they'd rather not be fresh around her. With a bit of luck, by then she will also have learned that shoes, model cars and cables are not to be chewed on.
